Please be advised that submissions received after October 31, 2012 will not be considered for the 2012 Festival.
Canadian musicians are eligible to apply for a touring grant through the Canada Council in order to offset some of their travel costs while touring within Canada. This support allows them to facilitate working all or art of the Canadian jazz festival circuit. For more information on the Canada Council's Music Festival Travel Grants CLICK HERE.
International Musicians (based outside of Canada)
Please be advised that submissions received after October 31, 2012 will not be considered for the 2013 Festival.
International applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, however only submissions received by October 31, 2012, will be considered for the the 2013 event. This deadline ensures we have ample time to assess your materials prior to mid-October, when many programming decisions take place, it is recommended to submit your materials early.
Musicians from Alberta
The EJFS does its best to accommodate and support its provincial talent but due to the limitations of our program it is not always possible to accommodate everyone with a performance. Please submit your packages in due time to allow for adequate time to access your submission.
